it was time for them to testify and when it would be time for major hassan to cross-examine them. staff sergeant lunsford was not cross-examined when major hasan was given a chance yesterday to ask him questions. he passed on the opportunity. major hasan asked very few questions of almost about a dozen witnesses on the witness stand yesterday. so it was clearly going to be as his own advice counsel is saying, he was just kind of standing by and letting prosecutors get every word in throughout the day yesterday, which learly led to the situation that we're at here today. but i just want to be clear and clarify one thing. there is a limited number of seating inside the courtroom reserved for news media every day. this building you see behind me is set up for the bigger crowd of news media to watch on a circuit feed we have set up there. after all of this has happened, that feed has gone quiet and the judge is meeting with the attorneys now. so nothing that we can see. we're standing by to wait and see what's going to happen next as the judge is meeting with attorneys and trying to figure
but defense lawyers are acting as kind of a stand by counsel if you like. they say hassan wants to get the death penalty, and they asked to be removed from the case. the army psychiatrist of course is charged with killing 13 people, wounding 32 in a november 2009 shooting rampage. >> it is an interesting story. more than 100 people on board this commercial flight, really so lucky when you think about what happened here, what could have been a major accident in indonesia. >> and guess what did happen? it was a boeing 737 landing when it ran into a cow, yes, a cow, that was standing on the runway. the pilot managed to skid the plane to a stop off the runway and into the grass, 110 passengers on board and no serious injuries, well apart from the cow. the local governor says fences around the airport not in great shape. no kidding. >> imagine that, a cow on the runway. >> handle that announcement over the pa, sorry about that, a cow. >> everybody was okay. customs agents in hong kong have seized a huge illegal ivory shipment. it was shipped from nigeria. >> said to be worth more than $8 mi
, my baby, my baby." a witness testifying testified, she said, in the moments before hassan shot her, giving the distinct impression he heard the cries for help and still shot her. hassan objected to that. he asked the judge to remind the witness she was under oath. the witness was asked if she wanted to change any have heard of her testimony and she defiantly said no, she did not want to change a word. he is facing 13 counts of premeditated murder and 32 counts of attempted pre- meditated murder. 45 counts in total. >> one last question. what is your sense of how long this trial may go? >> it is a fairly quick pace. 15 witnesses today. the original estimate was up to three months. the way it is looking now, i spoke with a military legal expert who thought the prosecution might be done within about three weeks. he has said -- two witnesses, one of whom may be himself. we do not know yet. we do not -- there is speculation he would take the stand himself, which would be an interesting moment, because he would open himself up to cross examination from prosecutors, which defendants very
the man that shot me, major hassan will be the man cross examining me. that's a huge challenge. >> reporter: hassan, who was also shot, is in a wheelchair and now wears a beard citing his muslim believes. he has not denied being the gunman and asked to plead guilty, but that was prohibited under military law because prosecutors are seeking the death penalty. he will be allowed to testify on his own behalf, but the judge denied his request to argue that he shot at u.s. soldiers to prevent taliban fighters from being killed in afghanistan. >> i believe that the judge made it quite clear that if he starts to grand stand in any way and steps away from the rules of court, his ability to represent himself will be revoked, and his defense counsel will step in and represent him. >> reporter: many of the shooting survivors are expected to testify and are petitioning the u.s. government to classify the incident as an act of terror so they can get combat-related benefits. many are angry that hassan is still being paid his military salary, totaling about $300,000 since his arrest. the judg
the death penalty. hassan, meanwhile, is also representing himself. he plans to argue that he was defending members of the taliban who were fighting americans in afghanistan. captain glenn -- is a judge advocate general and a professor of law at the coast guard academy, david webb is the host of the david webb show, also the co-founder of tea party 365 and a fox news contributor, and leslie marshall is a syndicated radio talk show host. thank you for joining us. >> good morning. patti ann: hasan admits he killed the 13 people. dozens of witnesses, yet this is considered a complex case. why? >> i think complex mostly as you just noted, patti ann, is that he has fired his two previous counsel assigned to him, so that's difficult to begin with. and really military justice is quite fair and really we've only brought the death penalty forward in the last 20, 25 years about 20 times. and in 11 of those, appeals of those sentences for a death penalty have been successfully appealed. so if you look to texas, there's been 500 executions in texas over the same period of time. so i think it's really d
should respond to iran's new president hassan rowhani. >> we turn to iran. they have a new president. some thing he's a moderate. >> yes. >> do you think there's such a thing? >> when you're talking about a moderate in iran you're talking a very narrow as spegts of it. perhaps the good news is rowhani really does have a belief that he needs to change the internal politics of iran that he needs to give a little bit more face to the people of iran that he needs to fix the economy, perhaps through that you can get some openings on the foreign policy side but i would not begin to believe that this is someone who's going to meadably begin to change the foreign policy. >> but should the united states take advantage of what might be a small opening with him, and if so, what should they do? >> first of all, keep in place the sanctions that are there so that they're continues to be pressure for change in iran. secondly by all means, make iran the aur that has been made repeatedly since 2006 and see if the change in circumstances politically in iran and the fact that th
. hassan faces the death penalty if convicted. he's acting as his own lawyer. so far he's raised few objections and only questions two witnesses. >>> 7:14. the father of edward snowden says his son did the right thing by revealing u.s. spy secrets. as kyla campbell reports from our washington, d.c. newsroom, snowden's father responded to comments made by the president on friday. good morning. >> reporter: president obama says snowden is not a patriot and cannot be characterized as a whistle-blower. during his first press conference in months this past friday, president obama said snowden had other avenues if he had concerns and leaking nsa information has put the u.s. at risk. president obama said if snowden believes what he did was right, he should return to the u.s. and make his case in court. snowden's father says the opinions of politicians don't matter to him. >> he's sacrificed than the president of the united states and peter king have evers. so how they cluz to characterize him -- choose to characterize him doesn't concern me. >> reporter: what republicans on capitol hill ha

thoughts, a hero survivor of the attack, sergeant manning shot several times by hassan. thanks for joining us. >> thank you. >> in your view, does this basically settle the question of whether or not this was terrorism? >> i think that it does. also i think the government has known this even prior to the shooting. i hope that they now that it's out and that they basically can't suppress it they will classify it as a terrorist attack. >> this guy who has received $300,000 in government pay while in jail, this guy, hasan, didn't keep his radical views to himself. they were known to the government, weren't they? >> yes. even as far back as 2007, his peers and co-workers knew that he was radicalized and knew he had some pretty extreme views. obviously the fbi had intercepted e-mails between him and anwar al awlaki. >> and they did what about it? >> absolutely nothing. according to the report, they said it was politically sensitive and refused to interview him or tell the army about it, which hasan was a commissioned officer so he had security clearance. of course he has access to classified in
